You want to choose EXPORT as an  html file, and pay attention the path to which you make the file.  

Make a copy of the file and take it to your target computer (your tower computer).

 

Open google chrome on your target computer, and using the bookmarks manager, choose IMPORT and find your file...

Cafejose is entirely correct but perhaps lacking in some detail !

 

Choose 'Export as HTML'. This will produce a file in a 'Save as' box. First give it a name - 'Chrome bookmarks' will do nicely and save to a memory stick you had previously connected. Remove the memory stick then connect it to your tower. Open chrome and select 'Import bookmarks from HTML'. You will get a 'File open' box, navigate to your memory stick, select the file you had just called 'Chrome bookmarks' and click 'Open'. Five more seconds and job done.

 

You can also do this by sending an email to your self with the HTML file as an attachment since AOL allows you to send yourself emails. Write the email on the one computer, attach the file, open the email on the other computer, download and run the attachment !

Chris Cosgrove is correct.  I did not give all the details; but only gave the essential idea.

 

Also, you can send the html file through  email using other email providers, too; not just through AOL.  You can do through Yahoo, Gmail, or ATT.  If computers are in the same house/apartment/room, then transferring on usb flashdrive should be preferred.

One also has the option of logging in to Chrome itself and using the sync function that's a part of the browser.   You can choose what you sync, and favorites/bookmarks are among those things.

 

The same is true for Firefox.

 

I love being able to set up a new machine, log in to the browser, and have every bit of my "browsing world" appear "automagically" after a few minutes of syncing.  One can also even do this on someone else's machine if you log into the browser there.  All of these specifics vanish if you log out, as they're attached to your browser user profile.
